Win Tickets ($30): Lemuria, Into It. Over It. @ Alhambra Theatre | w/ Jesus Miranda+ Your Rival , Indie, Punk, Rock, Pop (December 5)
Without a distinguishable understanding of the pop and intensity, a silent video of a Lemuria show would appear to be that of a blistering hardcore trio. To the viewers surprise, turning the audio on they’d find the stage diving mania and screamers are really chanting “Maybe I should wear lipstick too” or “You fit in my skin, softest I’ve let in” as guitarist/vocalist Sheena Ozzella’s dynamic, melodic voice guides the unlikely chorus.

Win Tickets ($40): Tomas Svoboda 75th Anniversary @ Saint Annes Chapel, Marylhurst University | Featuring Agnieszka Laska Dancers, Pianist Igor Lipinski (December 6-7)
In the classical concert hall tradition, Tomas Svoboda is Oregon’s most performed living composer – over 1000 performances world wide. His long career as composer, performer, educator has left an indelible impression on our fine art musical culture. Literally hundreds of students have learned performance techniques, composition and theory from the periphery of his brilliant musical mind. Svoboda’s “Etudes…” (in Fugue Style) are held by many to embody his core compositional essence, a carefully crafted musical vocabulary built primarily of imitation counter point, crisply turned phrasing and rock-solid structure.
